Justice Center research cited on Governor Parnell's "Choose Respect" web page

Justice Center research on sexual assault in Alaska is cited on Governor Parnell's web page, "Choose Respect: Alaskans Ending the Epidemic of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault."

The cite refers to a Justice Center study which found that sexual assault cases with adult victims that were originally reported to police paraprofessionals (e.g., VPSOs) were 3.5 times more likely to be prosecuted than sexual assault cases originally reported directly to Alaska State Troopers.
